Private Bass Guitar Teacher

I knew I wanted to play bass when I was 12 and heard the bassline for Bob Marley's Stir It Up. I've been playing ever since then. The primary attraction to bass for me is the groove, and that's what I like to emphasize (which I think is severely neglected in standard music education). I have studied theory and composition extensively and like to tie those elements in and show where the bass fits into any situation harmonically and rhythmically. Most importantly teaching is a fun and rewarding experience for me and my students. I love to teach and get my bass students grooving!

About Kellen

I believe this is a great time to be a musician. I have come of age as a musician in a time when music making and the music industry have shifted dramatically. There are many positives in this shift, with new oppurtinites opening up for musicians. I also see these changes not being addressed in

Great teacher! Kellen has made me really excited about the guitar again.
Jon
Kellen is a great instructor. He explains musical ideas in an way that I qet quickly. I'll show him a song and he'll pick it up and teach it to me right away. I would definitely recommend him!
Susan
I had been playing guitar for a while, mostly learning songs and chord changes on my own. I wanted to take lessons to work on composing my own songs, and this is where Kellen really helped me. He had a lot of ideas and suggestions that were really helpful in trying to create a unique composing style. He's a trained musician, and it shows when he helps me with music theory and exposing me to lots of different styles of music.

I’ve wanted to learn the bass for awhile, and after a month of trying on my own my husband got me some bass lessons with Moa. I was really nervous to start, but our weekly lessons have become the highlight of my week. Moa is very patient and really good at explaining things in ways I can understand. I’m very excited to continue lessons with her - I can’t think of another person I’d want to have as a music teacher.

Moa is an excellent instructor! She has a great attitude and is a patient teacher. She customizes lesson plans based on your interests and skill level. I was pretty new to guitar when I started, and I’ve already learned a few different songs! I would highly recommend her!

We purchased a 12-lesson package for my daughter as a Christmas Gift. My daughter is 14 years old, and after completing these lessons her love for music has grown. She had only taken a beginner's level course in piano and guitar prior to working with Mauricio. My daughter looked forward to every lesson, and would come home to keep practicing and improving her skills. We plan to work with Mauricio again in the near future and would highly recommend him!
Maria
3rd lesson so far, and my daughter has learned so much!! She enjoys her classes with Mauricio and looks forward to each class. Mauricio has a small home studio with various musical instruments. His experience and skill in teaching music is quite apparent and much appreciated!

Spence is a great teacher who’s taught for many years.I have been with Spence for a year. I am 71 years old and was unsure I could start at this age. He is a calm and encouraging teacher with infinite knowledge and teaching skills. Under his guidance I am playing songs, transposing basic keys, strumming, and getting into a little bit of music theory, something that was completely foreign to me. He is the kind of instructor that makes you eager to practice and to show him what you have accomplished In between lessons. I had the chance to watch him perform in one of his two groups, and he does all the fancy riffs. Finding Spence has made my guitar playing a great new adventure!
Jesse Wolf
Spencer worked hard with me to become a better player on acoustic, electric guitar and bass guitar. From music theory to ear training he did it all. I would not be the musician I am today without his help. Knowledgeable in every form of music, jazz to heavy metal, to reading sheet music and tabs. He’s also just super friendly and easy to work with. Became a good friend too!

"This is the guy you are looking for.

At 42 I finally got around to buying my first guitar (no musical background other than fan) and set about teaching myself with books and videos. 10 months later I realized that in spite of working at it every day I was going to get to the 1-year mark and not be able to play a single song all the way through (of the 70's and 80's hard rock that I love, I could play "Twinkle-Twinkle Little Star" pretty well). I was rapidly becoming "that guy" who can play sloppy intros to 300 songs, but nothing else.

I looked around the web, and settled on Ahmad because of his credentials and reviews, and I could not be happier with my choice.

The thing that makes Ahmad special is that he put as much effort into becoming a great guitar teacher as he did in becoming a great guitar player. Every lesson is tailored exactly to my ability at that time. If ever I have had particular trouble with something Ahmad is ready with additional material, alternate ways to learn it, different ways to explain it. No matter what the technique or concept, Ahmad has seen this mistake before and knows just what to do. Some days I leave with many pages of material to master, and some days just one or two. It is all about how slowly or quickly I am picking up the new thing, and all about learning things the right way so that the foundation is solid when I am ready to advance to the next level. There is no schedule or competition (except with myself) and the only objective is to learn more and get better.

To show examples in action Ahmad routinely finds 70s and 80s hard rock for me (not every single note is from Guns-n-Roses of course, but if a particular concept relates to something in a familiar song from the genre, that's the one Ahmad will pick for me to master). You do not have to learn jazz! (I mean if jazz is your thing I am certain that Ahmad can teach you that.)

I really doubt that there is a player at any level (or in any style) who would not learn a lot from Ahmad (that is if you are prepared to be humble and possibly review some foundational material you think you know already... if you knew it, Ahmad would not be teaching it to you... he can hear that your timing is off, or if you didn't hit all of the strings in that chord, and so can your audience). (Once, while I was performing an exercise from the previous lesson, Ahmad had his back to me digging in his filing cabinet for my next materials and said "Did you play the fifth note with an upstroke?"... He heard that, it was supposed to be a down stroke and he heard a difference so slight I didn't even know I was doing it.)

If you are a beginner as I was, my advice is to commit to four lessons with Ahmad. By the end of that time you will hear that you are advancing, and more importantly you will understand where you were and where you are going. It might seem kind of basic at first (which is why I say to go with at least four) but it does not take very long to understand how much better you will be with strong fundamentals. If, instead, you learn to play badly, and you practice regularly, eventually your speed will improve... and then you will play badly fast which actually sounds worse than playing badly slow... all that work for less than nothing.

I have been taking lessons for about a year and half. I can play some Lead Guitar now. And I can play some real songs now. Even those 300 intros are getting tight, that is to say I now play them with the right timing, technique, phrasing and feel!

PS - If Ahmad says "it's time for the Harmony Classes", do it! Like most things Ahmad has taught me, I have resisted it in some way at first, and the harmony lessons are no different. Like everything Ahmad has taught me, the harmony classes have immediately made me better at playing guitar, and have provided a foundation that makes the next thing and the next thing and the next thing easier, faster, and better."

Learn Bass Guitar: How to Play a Walking Bass Line in 3 Steps

Looking for a way to make your bass lines move? Bass guitar teacher Miller W. shares his three step plan to creating walking bass lines...
